The Casdon mini kitchen collection - so close to the real deal
Well, something of my babyg colleagues' love of play food must have rubbed off 'cause I've become obsessed with play kitchens. I just bought one for my son, and it's been great sending him off to cook something as I try to put our real dinner on the table. His favorite meal to date is carrot on toast.
Anyways, over the next couple weeks, I thought I'd share some of the fruits of my kid-kitchen research, by bringing you several of my favorite finds.
Featuring an opening utensil drawer, sliding dishwasher trays, and mechanized sounds, the Casdon 511 Toy Electronic Sink Unit may be the closest thing to the real deal. The chrome "effect" sink top makes a running water sound, as does the dishwasher underneath. (Let’s hope it's a quite model.) I love the cool, mid-century styling of sink, but am less enamored with the look of the matching range, which also features cooking sounds, and a light up stove top, et al. (Not to mention the ugly plastic food, but you know where to get more organic fare.) Still it's better than many sets, and I bet kids would love it. Plus at £44 for the match set, you can't beat the price!
